Club members play bowls in the Clubhouse (Short Mat) between the end of September and late April, and outdoors on our Green between the end of April and the end of September.
Members may use the Green at any time, provided the rink has not been booked in the 'Rink book' (diary), the contract groundsmen are not tending it, or the green convenor has not closed all or part of it. For novice members, coaching can be arranged. There are practice sessions on Monday afternoons, and Tuesday mornings, though some say the best time to meet fellow members and to play bowls may be at the Thursday evening practice or at the new weekly "fun bowling" evenings which start on Wednesday 16th May.
There is no fee for Outdoor roll-ups and £2 for matches, and any charges necessary to cover the costs of catering*.
Indoor (Short Mat)
Members can play on the mats and any time that the mats are down, provided that the Clubhouse or the mat(s) has not been booked in the 'Mat book' (diary). There are roll-ups (practice sessions) several times a week: Monday and Wednesday afternoons and Tuesday and Thursday evenings.
There is a fee of £2 for Indoor roll-ups and matches, and any charges necessary to cover the costs of catering*.
